In this chapter we give several examples of how the multiscale approach for atomistic spin-dynamics, as described in Part I and Part II of this book, performs for describing magnon excitations of solids. Due to the recent experimental advancements in detecting such excitations for surfaces and multilayers, we focus here primarily on spin wave excitations of two-dimensional systems. The discussion can easily be generalized to bulk magnets, and in fact some examples of bulk properties are given in this chapter as well. Magnons can be categorized as dipolar and exchange magnons, where the latter are in the range of giga Hz frequency, and are the main focus of this chapter.
